Your post may refer to three (3) settings: 1) BIOS for the laptop/hardware itself or the 2) operating system or 3) password.
BIOS - Upon restart, when the logo screen is displayed, press F2 to enter BIOS Setup.
OS - to really get back to the beginning:
1. Go to System restore and click on the first/earliest date of restore point. This would perhaps be the earliest backup of your system and everything will revert to as to how it was then; or
2. Reformat, clean/fresh install of Windows.
Now if you are referring to forgotten BIOS or entry password, you have to bring it to HP service with proof of ownership/purchase and other documentations.
Good luck and kind regards.
Hi , Threre is only one way to get passed it , you have to open your laptop case to expose the motherboard and find the pin that says" PASWRD" and remove that pin . you can try removing the battery for 5 min , and see if it resets ..........Good luck Roy
Not sure if your talking about a windows operating system password or a BIOS password that comes up when you first turn it on but either way, as soon as you turn on the laptop, keep pressing the f11 key and it should bring you into the HP Factory Restore. If it doesn't then you'll need a windows cd to restore your laptop back to factory defaults and then load the drivers and any software you'll use on the laptop.
Keep in mind if you have a BIOS password then you'll need to call HP to get help in removing that.
If you forgot the password to the BIOS, then you're likely not going to be able to remove it. If it's just a BIOS password on the hard drive, then you have a chance of being able to reset it. Typically, the HP\Compaq Setup keys are: Esc, F1, or F10. When you first power on the laptop there should be something at the bottom of the screen for a second or 2 that tells you what keys you need to press.
You need to reset your bios, this will erase all your cmos data, incluiding your password. You nned to locate and remove cmos battery, in this model you will find the battery below your laptop, you nned to remove your back doors, locate your battery wich it is connected thru a little white conenctor to your Mobo, disconect, turn on your laptop, press f10 and this will go to your bios, remove all pass word in your security menu, turn off your laptop and reconnect your cmos battery, you will need to setup your dates corrctly.
Try restarting the computer and as it powers up hit F8. Then select Safe mode. when it shows the login screen you should see Administrator and whatever your user id is. Chose administrator and then once logged in go to control panel, select user accounts and select yours and then click remove password.
